I and my son send condolences to all who love Julio. We're both wrestlers and everytime we saw him, he would talk to us. Julio is a member of our wrestling family and will be greatly missed. He loved his family with all his heart. His face lit up while watching or filming his son wrestling and it filled him with pride and joy. May God illuminate his soul and grant his loved ones peace. 💜💚
